Cape Cod offers so many gorgeous backgrounds for portrait photography sessions. From rustic boardwalks and marshes, to sandy beaches and tidal flats, lighthouses and nature preserves...so many choices! I offer year-round custom portrait sessions for locals, high school senior pictures and summer sessions for families on vacation. Do you have a favorite spot in mind for your photo session? If yes, be sure to share it with me! I will happily travel to any spot on the Cape. Together we will plan a custom session experience, from choosing the location, to wardrobe consultation, I will be right there if you need me! Be sure to read on to learn about some of the popular spots for sessions on Cape Cod.
Falmouth's Old Silver beach is a very popular spot. It's known for its soft fine sand beach and shimmering silver ocean water. Scusset Beach in Sagamore and the South Cape Beach State Park in Mashpee are also beautiful beach options in the area. If you're interested in a beach and boardwalk photo session, check out the Sandwich Boardwalk. It's listed as one of the top 10 boardwalks in America. The 1,350 ft boardwalk stretches over marsh land and connects to Boardwalk beach.
Many of the mid-Cape Dennis beaches are flat and seem to go on forever at low tide! The combination of rock walls, beach dunes and wide open space at Chapin Memorial beach, Mayflower beach and Corporation beach are perfect for large group family portraits, engagements, and high school senior picture sessions. Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable and Bass River Beach in Yarmouth are great options too.
The lower Cape offers more beautiful options for your photography session by the sea. Chatham Lighthouse Beach has open ocean views, Atlantic harbor seals swimming nearby, beach dunes and a lighthouse. The parking can be a challenge in the height of the summer, but it's worth the effort. If you are staying as a guest at one of the luxury Inns in the area like; The Chatham Bars Inn, Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster and Wequassett Inn in Harwich, I can book your photo session there, during your stay. If you're staying in or near Orleans, Skaket beach is a really nice spot for beach portraits.
Beautiful outer Cape beaches:
The Cape Cod National Seashore is located in the outer Cape area. The pristine shoreline begins in Chatham and extends 40 miles along the Atlantic Ocean, through the towns of; Orleans, Eastham, Wellefleet, Truro and Provincetown.
If you don't want to travel to the cape for a session, there are lots of great spots on the south shore. Here are some spots:
